Quoting from the APS-IDEA website:

“The American Physical Society Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Allicance (APS-IDEA) is a new, community-wide effort to work with the physics community to strengthen its efforts to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). Funded by the APS Innovation Fund in 2019, APS-IDEA will convene representatives from about 30 physics departments, laboratories, and research collaborations to attend an initial workshop June 12-13, 2020, establish an online learning community, and, more broadly, form a community of practice with the goal of transforming the culture of physics. As in any emerging subfield of physics, progress towards a more inclusive physics community will be accelerated by collaboration, sharing of promising practices, and grounding the work in research. APS-IDEA was created to support the physics community’s efforts to improve EDI.”
